so tomorrow is feb 1st ... where did january even go?!?! before i get to that i thought i'd share my last layout i finished up for lil davis for the month. was waiting to see if i got my box of new goodies in time to do my last layout ... but it hasn't come yet, so i had to pull out some older stuff.
had these canvas numbers and wanted to do something with them. i was sitting up in my studio a few nights ago when i took a few pics of alyssa sitting there watching tv. i NEVER take pictures at night ... don't know why, but i don't. so was happy these actually turned out. i uploaded them, edited them, made a collage, and printed it out ... all within about an hour of taking the pictures! so cool! so then came up with the idea of doing a layout about her favorite channel on tv ... and the shows she likes to watch. wasn't too sure when i plopped that blue flower on this afternoon ... but i needed a little more color. think it's kindof cool.
so, the 1st of the month. always good for a few things.
- new kits go up over at poppy ink. i know people are on waiting lists trying to get signed up for this kit ... so glad i'm already in. it's total eye candy over there too ... so much fun stuff to look at. i've been good too ... havn't ordered any add-on kits. but still love to look and tempt myself! lol!
- new garden goes up over at 2peas. once again ... more eye candy. love seeing what the garden girls come up with each month. i don't always remember to check this on the 1st of the month ... but i'm on top of it this time.
- like knowing that i can start a new folder in "my pictures". i sort all my digital pics into folders for each month. i have seperate folders for daycare pics and family pics. my system has worked pretty good for the last year ... although feeling the need to rethink a little now that i've been shooting in "raw" (for all of a week now!). but my january daycare folder is huge ... since ady has been my main subject this month and since i've been doing tons of practicing. so glad to start up a "february" folder!
- and this next one isn't the 1st of the month ... but on the 2nd i go to get our taxes done. made the appointment early this year. maybe too early since i don't have joe's w-2 yet. lol! still need to get some of my daycare paperwork in order ... nothing like leaving it until the last minute. hopefully we do well this year ... we could really use it right now.
- got all my lil davis layouts done for january ... so on to february. and i'm convinced the fedex guy is going to actually stop here tomorrow and drop off my design team box ... instead of driving by and laughing at me for waiting on him! lol! maybe some new products will get me inspired!
i'm sure there's more stuff going on the 1st of the month that i'm not thinking of. oh yeah ... gotta send off the mortgage payment! lol! i totally forgot about that!
